Ajandra Reang was a resident of Kurma village in Gomati district. The Leader of Opposition has alleged BJP activists for the murder and for carrying out unlawful activities throughout the state. The Ex- Chief Minister also reminded BJP that the people of the state had voted them in power to do more good work than the previous regime. So, they must fulfill their pre -poll promises which they had made to the people. Manik Sarkar also demanded free and fair investigation of the murder of Ajandra Reang and has also assured the poor family members of Ajandra Reang who have lost their only son that CPI(M) party is with them.
Speaking to TNT- The Northeast Today over phone M.P. Jitendra Choudhury told us “Our activist Ajandra Reang was being continuously threatened by anti-social element of BJP party since the new government has sworn-in. On 14 April night he called up his wife and asked her to save him. After that his phone was not reachable. After two days his dead body was found tied up to a tree in the jungle. Whereas, the police had arrested our party’s district Secretary Samir Rudra Paul whom they have to later release on bail. But he himself was under threat after the last assembly elections. Though we are also not defending him but we want the police department to work above political parties instruction and to nab the real culprits who have destroyed a whole family”.
BJP has, however denied all the allegations saying, “We don’t have any link with the murder of Ajandra Reang and it was due to CPI(M) ‘s inner party clash between different fraction that a young boy has to loose his life. None of our party activists have any connection with the murder”, said BJP MLA of that Ratan Das.
